    Incredible.

    Gareth went above and beyond to make our wedding day special. He learned several songs specifically for us - and it really made the ceremony unique. Many of our guests were so impressed with the quality of music, and he played covers of all different genres (chosen by us), a little something in there for everyone - from Drake to to the Eagles to Blink 182. Gareth was incredibly easy to work with, very responsive and very flexible. Out of all of the vendors we had for our wedding Gareth was one of our absolute favourites. We would recommend him to anyone for their big day!

    Beyond incredible!

    An absolute talent! Gareth played the cocktail hour and reception at our wedding in the Fall and it was a highlight of the evening. All of our guests asked where we’d found him and commented on how memorable he’d helped to make our first dance! Gareth is just incredible and I cannot recommend him strongly enough. He was quick to reply to emails, maintained communication with us, and was really easygoing about working with our timeline, including speeches and dinner courses. We requested that Gareth learned to play our first song — and I have never heard it sound so beautiful! It was perfect. He also learned a song for our parent-child dances and timed his set perfectly so I could share special moments with both my mom and dad. Great music, great guy—thank you, Gareth!

    Endless compliments on his performance. Your guests will be very happy you booked him

    Gareth was an incredible part of our wedding. We decided to add him for the ceremony and cocktail hour before the DJ came and it really completed the feel of the ceremony and made the cocktail hour enjoyable for everyone. Strongly recommend Gareth for your special day, definitely worth the money.

    Best at communication, organization and lots of song choices!

    We had hired a DJ for the reception but didn't really give the ceremony and cocktail hour too much thought until a few months leading up to our wedding. We didn't want to hit "play" on a Spotify list so I reached out to pretty much every solo guitarist on Wedding Wire. We were very lucky that Gareth was available because he fit our style perfectly. He not only has over 650 songs for you to pick from but he will also learn songs for you. In comparison to the other musicians I talked with on Wedding Wire I can tell you Gareth responds very quickly, his rates are amazing and he's very organized and professional. Our guests gave us compliments on his performance all night long and he really was that extra special touch we didn't know we needed. Thanks Gareth for adding to our big day. I'm only sorry I couldn't listen to you more during the cocktail hour.

    What a talent!

    Where do I start?! When I did my research online for a guitarist who I wanted to sing our first dance, I immediately got drawn to Gareth's voice and thought that he would be the perfect person to do the job. By fluke, coincidence or fate (whatever you call it), when my fiance (then) and I watched the Leafs game, I heard somebody singing and playing a guitar from a far and actually voiced out that I wanted "him" to sing our first dance! Lo and behold, it was Gareth!!! I couldn't believe it! I had to disturb his performance and had to talk to him, I messaged him and hired immediately! HE DID NOT DISAPPOINT! Everyone was soo impressed and he braved the cold singing outside during the ceremony! My only regret was I should've hired him longer and had him play during the dinner! But we were so happy with his talent, his personality and professionalism! My husband and I will definitely come and watch him perform live at one of his gigs in the near future! Cannot recommend him enough!!!

    Amazing Musician

    We had Gareth play at our outdoor wedding ceremony last month. He made the process incredibly easy. All we had to do was pick the songs we wanted from his extensive repertoire and he took care of everything else. When we realise there was no power outlet at our venue, he was cool and calm and we were able to figure an easy solution. We received many compliments about the music at our ceremony and we're so glad we had Gareth there.

    Beautiful music, professional vendor

    Gareth was a pleasure to work with. He played a host of our requested songs from his repertoire and all of the music was beautiful. As a host, I appreciated his friendly reminders to ensure a smooth event. We received many compliments on his music, and still do. I would absolutely recommend his work.

    Extremely talented and professional musician

    Our experience in booking Gareth for our wedding was positive from day one. He was always quick and happy with answering all of our questions, and he made us feel at ease with our music for the day.

    We had Gareth sing outside during our ceremony and cocktail hour. Gareth listened to everything we wanted and made sure the timing went seamlessly for the walk down the aisle and our first dance. Gareth had an excellent song list which made it easy for us to choose the songs we wanted him to play.

    If you are reading this wondering whether to book him for your event I highly recommend it. We had so many positive comments from our guests about him and he really made our wedding day seem complete. He is such a talented singer and guitarist and we felt so lucky to have him play at our wedding
